Adding insult to injury for a Los Angeles team already dealing with a plethora of injuries, Allen will now miss his third consecutive game after there was hope he would return this week. It has undoubtedly hindered a Chargers offense that is yet to exceed 24 points this season, something they did in 11 of their 17 games last season.
In one game this season, Allen made four receptions on four targets for 66 yards. With the 30-year-old unable to go, expect a heavy target share yet again for Mike Williams and an uptick for Josh Palmer.
